My name is Myron Mike Crandall. My wife is Ruthie Linder Crandall. I have
spent many years adding sources and stories whenever possible to the genealogy. 
Almost all of Ruthie's ancestry come from the south.  Her major genealogy names
Linder, Berry, Cooper, Hood, Lamb, Morgan, McNew, and Pattison.
My own ancestry comes mostly from the north. My major genealogy names are;
Crandall, Bailey, Lamborn, Lewis, Moody, Packer, Pember and Spaulding.
We hope that you will enjoy  your visit here and find new information for your
own family,  and are anxious to hear from anyone who may have additional
information about our ancestors or in helping us with any corrections.

This genealogy may contain mistakes. Therefore, all entries should be checked
against original documents for accuracy. We hope that these webpages are useful
to you in your research. Years ago I first began using PAF to record my genealogy
but when the LDS Church stopped updating PAF I switched from PAF to Ancestral
Quest I switched because almost all of the functions of Ancestral Quest are identical
to what was in PAF. I use the paid version but a free version called Ancestral Quest
Basics is an easy to  use, complete genealogy program. It has all the same features
you need to record, preserve and share your family history.   It is just like the full 
version of Ancestral Quest,   but is missing some of the more advanced bells and
whistles along with all of  the cost.  But Ancestral Quest along with several important 
enhancements has the ability to synchronise data with FamilySearch FamilyTree. If 
you know how to use PAF you can now use Ancestral Quest Basics for free to
combine the core functionality of PAF and FamilySearch FamilyTree in one product.
It looks and feels like a major upgrade to PAF. I love it! Here is the link to get: 

I know of two main good website's useful to research genealogy. One is FamilySearch
Along with FamilySearch, is a very large Family Tree. which is also free to join.
You might find your own ancestry here. To get to the Family Tree just open up
FamilySearch. Look across the top of the page and you will find the "Free Account"
button to the right of "Sign In" "Family Tree". Click on that and a new page
will open up asking you for your account information. Don't worry about missionaries
visiting you because of your signing up because none will come from signing up here.
The other is  
Ancestry is not a free site like Familysearch is but I have found it to be very useful.
At times even more so than FamilySearch. Another good way to record your genealogy
is by using the Family Tree in The tree in is as good as
Ancestral Quest is. Better if you consider Ancestry will save your work for you online.
